The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) Short Courses

The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) provides training that combines world leading research with an applied perspective. Their courses are designed to enable legal practitioners, government officials, students, academics, and civil society organisations to gain expert insights and to deepen their knowledge in areas of international law.

For autumn 2021, BIICL has expanded its programme of short courses to bring a wider range of international law topics to participants from across the world. Each course is convened and taught by international experts from BIICL’s own team in collaboration with external partners, combining academic expertise with practical experience in these fields of law.

A limited number of scholarships are available for each course to provide financial assistance for people who cannot otherwise participate in the courses, and for people from communities that are currently under-represented in the legal community. Discounts for group bookings and student members are also available.
